    Ben,

    Your writing forever finds me nodding in agreement or union with you on almost every write...I adore how open and honest and sometimes raw your writing is, this one is no exception....apart from being exceptionally good.....you pen is fierce my friend.

    All the best fella.

    Ben

    There you go again Ben, with not a slight of hand you wove wit and rhyme into a beautiful Italian Sonneto, at line 14 it did end after enticing many friends! Great work, glad it was Nominated.
